As a visitor to lots of gardens, I felt that I had to post a review of this magical place. While there is a great National Trust garden just along the coast, Trebah - an independent charitable trust- is a spectacular valley garden. Landscape, planting, views and vistas are combined to make this one of the best gardens in the... More

This garden is beautiful, and breathtaking. We went with two young children who enjoyed the adventure playgrounds and following the trails down to the wonderful private beach. Tickets were very good value for money, and valid for one week from date of purchase. Definately well worth a visit.

Loved wandering around the gardens, bonus that they are so dog friendly. The guide and map very clear with an additional page of hints and tips to make sure you see the best of the gardens. Although it was busy we wandered along different paths and felt we were alone. The beach is fab, gardens amazing with so many different... More

We visited last summer. Beautiful gardens. But the best bit was the flat calm water down on the beach (not sure if we were lucky or its usually that good). Endless skimming practice for kids and adults alike.

Visited the gardens today and although we are still in February the gardens are beautiful, fantastic walkways all around right down to it's own beach with WW2 history. There are ponds, a water garden and a waterfall, the place is magnificent. I can't wait to visit in the late spring early summer. The café serves really nice lunches which is... More

Hydrangeas fabulous in early October.Good tea room with nice cake, enjoyed the shop and bought some bulbs- still waiting to see how they... More

I had a stroll through the gardens in August, the garden is both tranquil and breathtakingly beautiful, the end of the path leading a nice beach, good place to have a walk, a few hours of rest and an ice-cream on a sunny day down at the beach or some tea & scones when it's not. This is a place... More

We enjoyed walking down one side of the valley and up the other side. Would have liked more handrails. Quite a way down before we found a seat. Interesting to see the beach at the bottom where U.S. forces embarked. Very peaceful there and the water lapping beside the quay reminded me of a visit to Norway where I think... More

Loved this garden, despite visiting in January. We look forward to visiting again at another time of year.
